Special Tips for Word 2007

Part of Word 2007 For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Word 2007 is full of fun and useful tips and tricks. The tips in the following list are useful to keep in mind as you create, format, and manage your documents:

  • Always press Ctrl+Enter to start a new page. That inserts a manual page break, which forces a new page automatically.

  • Use tabs to line up your text. Never use spaces. One tab is all you need. If you’re typing more than one tab, you need to reset the tab stops.

  • Always use one tab between columns to line them up. That makes editing the information easier if you have to do it.

  • If you need to change any page formatting in the middle of your document, start a new section.

  • Save your styles in a template! That way, you can use them for new documents you create without having to rebuild all your styles over and over.
